A statement has surfaced on Twitter threatening to bring the fierce rivalry between the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front and the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) from the battlefields of Syria to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The statement, whose title bespoke its authors – Saudi Mothers and Wives of ISIL Militants – threatened to initiate a campaign of assassinations against religious authorities in Saudi Arabia who are supportive of the al-Nusra Front, Al-Alam reported.

It went so far as to include the identities of family members of the targeted religious authorities in these threats.

The statement, signed by 20 Saudi women, expressed the women’s “shock” in response to a suicide attack that targeted an ISIL headquarters in Syria, which was carried out by an al-Nusra terrorist dressed as a “respected sheikh.”

In their statement, the women warned “misleading preachers” that they would bring the fight to their doors if one of their sons fighting alongside the ISIL is hurt as a result of their sedition (fitna).

“We swear by almighty Allah, we will take revenge on your families and make them taste the dose of sorrow as you have made us taste,” read the statement publicized by Al Wasat News. The women named particular preachers, including Adnan al Arour and Shafi’ al Ajami, who they say are publicly supporting al-Nusra over ISIL.

After the statement was issued, Twitter accounts linked to both ISIL and al-Nusra began tweeting lists of people whose “blood is forfeited.” The ISIL list included nine personalities from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and the United Kingdom.

A recent British defense study showed that nearly 100,000 militants, fragmented into 1,000 groups, are fighting in Syria against the government and people.

A British parliamentary report has revealed that one in nine militants returning from abroad, mainly Syria, have taken part in a terror plot, further pointing out that the number of UK citizens travelling to fight in foreign conflicts reached “alarming levels unlike anything seen in recent years.”

The report, produced by the House of Commons’ Home Affairs Committee, also said, “a one-in-nine radicalization rate would make foreign fighter experience one of the strongest predictors of individual involvement in domestic operations that we know.”

Syria has become the “theatre of choice for foreign fighters” due to its proximity to Europe and the ease of travel to its major cities.
